South Korea's K-pop boy band BTS has topped the album preorder rankings on Amazon, the largest e-commerce firm in the U.S. 

According to its management agency Big Hit Entertainment on Thursday, BTS' third full-length album "Love Yourself: Tear" shot up to number one on Amazon's CDs and Vinyl Best Sellers list just one day after preorder sales began on Tuesday local time. 

Last year, the boy band's mini album "Love Yourself: Her," which was the first in the "Love Yourself" series, stayed on top of the preorder list for six consecutive days. 

That album was also the first ever from a Korean band to be formally distributed on Amazon.  

The upcoming album "Love Yourself: Tear" will be released on May 18th.
